Après [ˈä-ˌprā}: The social activities and entertainment following a day’s skiing.
If you thought that after the lifts stopped turning in Whistler all of the fun would end, you couldn’t be more wrong. Skiing is certainly the star of the day, but there can be so much more to do after the sun goes down. Heck, sometimes the plan to après-ski is half the reason you can decide to hit the slopes to begin with. Typically when people think of après they imagine noshing on tasty food, savouring cold drinks and breaking out in some occasional dancing in ski boots with friends. While they’re not wrong – après can be so much more. Whether you are in the mood for an energized party scene or a cozy night in, there is something for everyone. So put on your favourite après-ski outfit and follow this advice to find the perfect après for you.
